Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Hoppy Birthday

April is finally here and maybe we will soon get spring.  We had snow today.  It just will not stop. 

I am here today with a card from LeAnn's World 101.  This image reminds me of a spring day.  The image is called Frog Talk  and can be found in LeAnn's World Esty Shop.

I coloured the image with Copics, Posca pen, and pencil crayon. To complete the card I added a sentiment by Stampin Up, clouds and a bicycle.  

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Come join LeAnn's facebook group to see more inspiring cards and projects .
